Get Lost in The Fun: Twin Cities Harvest Festival and Maze

Can you really get lost in a corn maze? Yes. But you’ll have a blast while you’re in it! Located in Brooklyn Park, the Twin Cities Harvest Festival and Maze is packed with entertainment for the entire family.

Entrance to corn maze


Once you get through the entrance you’ll wonder where to start. The kids love the corn pit, where they can jump in and swim through the corn to their heart's content. The straw bale maze is fun whether they try to crawl through it or run around on top of the hay bales (which is a very popular method). The petting zoo is full of the familiar (goats and bunnies) and the exotic (kangaroos and lemurs), most of which you can get up close and personal with, if you like that kind of thing. The hayride is a lot of fun and gives you a chance to relax (even though the kids don't need it).


There is also live music, the pumpkin slinger (challenging, but you get to sling pumpkins, so it’s worth it), pony rides, a gunny sack slide, a pumpkin patch, food, and more! Obviously the main attraction is the incredible maze, which is the largest in Minnesota!

The maze is a great way to spend an hour (or longer, depending on your ability to follow a map) with a couple of friends or a larger group of people. It becomes even more fun when you try to find all of the trivia questions throughout the maze. Answer all of them and turn in your guesses and you could win a prize (we love prizes). There’s no other experience quite like trying to navigate through a corn maze, whether you’re good at it or not. Getting lost is part of the experience and you’ll laugh your way through the entire thing. If you’ve never been to a corn maze, this is the one to see!
